Control Systems


Revolutionary PIERCE Control System is based on more than 25 years of experience in the field of flame cutting and on the latest technologies from the fields of electronics and software. Owing to the concpet It can be used much more than only for cutting. The system enables to control the complete cutting station including controlling other processes and technologies and, at the same time, It informs operators of the machine about regular maintenance and current condition of the device. The touch screen together with software interface make the system not only very simple and practical in Its operation, but simultaneously very attractive. The openness of the program makes possible to add new upgrades very easily and apply your experience and ideas as well.


  • Every operator logs in the system separately which prevents an unauthorized use of the machine by different people and enables registration of each operators work.
  • The system periodically informs the operator about specified maintenance of each part of the machine and so their damage or reduction of their service life can be prevented.
  • The system is very simple and transparent for the operation - all the parameters for controlling all the technologies are entered via the screen or an input database.
  • The control system makes possible to process more requirements at the same time.
  • The control system monitors and keeps basic information of the cutting process such as cutting time, length, numbers of material piercing for each technology, etc.
  • The graphic part of the screen shows the operator clearly and in detail the flame cutting plan and each detail can be quickly seen.


  • The base of the control system is a very durable industrial computer which do not need to be cooled under routine working conditions. 
  • Computer data are stored into Compact Flash Disc. This design completely eliminates faults due to fatigue or damage of moving parts.
  • The industrial version of a colour touch screen guarantees Its long endurance and high reliability even under extremely dusty environmental and climatic conditions. A great benefit from the viewpoint of the service life and maintenance is absence of mechanical push-buttons and controls.
  • The communication interface helps the operator in an intelligible and intuitive way in preparation of cutting and during the process. Each screen of the machine can be adapted to the particular spcification of the machine and to the currently used technology. 
  • This fact together with logical succession of separate steps of the control process makes the system very simple for training operators. Large controls make the operative control even easier using a touch display. 
  • This system could be used all over the world thanks to unambiguous images of the controls together with different language versions of legends and reports.




  • Windows XP Embedded Platform: The use of this platform provides a lot of benefits such as compatibility with other extensions based on such platform or on incorporation into your company network.
  • Write protect: The basic operating system is protected against overwriting. That function prevents unwanted changes and writes into the system which could damage it.
  • Hibernation mode: This function enables a fast start of the system when It is switched on.

  • Communication interface: EtherCAT - Modern communication digital interface that makes possible to communicate at the real time with up to 40 servo-units working simultaneously on the basis.

  • Standard range of operating temperature: 0 - 50 °C
  • 95% humidity (non-condensing)
  • It can also be equipped with heating for the environment outside the range of the given operating values - for work in unheated halls in the cold climate or, on the other way, with cooling for areas with high summer temperatures.
